Hillary Clinton is “convinced” there was “some sort” of collusion between Donald Trump’s associates and Russia, she told the USA Today.
Clinton said there “certainly was communication and there certainly was an understanding of some sort.”
“Because there’s no doubt in my mind that Putin wanted me to lose and wanted Trump to win.”
“And there’s no doubt in my mind that there are a tangle of financial relationships between Trump and his operation with Russian money. And there’s no doubt in my mind that the Trump campaign and other associates have worked really hard to hide their connections with Russians.”
Asked if she believes there was actual collusion between Trump associates and Russia, Clinton replied, “I’m convinced of it.”
“I happen to believe in the rule of law and believe in evidence, so I’m not going to go off and make all kinds of outrageous claims,” she said. “But if you look at what we’ve learned since [the election], it’s pretty troubling.”
